ProScience

11.11.2022 // Acting with Confidence - Self-Presentation and Confident Appearance

*This workshop will be held in German.*

Being self-aware and confident in one's own strengths and opinions will determine one's career and opportunities in the academic professional field. In this seminar, participants develop a better understanding of their own capacity to present themselves effectively and to confidently represent their own positions and strengths. The goal is for participants to acquire, through repeated practice, the ability to use their voice and body language potential to position themselves effectively with their strengths and positions in everyday university life, in presentations, committees, job interviews, in small talk, or a professional exchange.

11. November 2022, 09:00 am to 5:00 pm

Workshop Facilitator: Sabine Scheerer

23.02.2023 // Motherhood and Science. Collaborative writing against the (in)compatibility of scientific activity and the image of motherhood

*This workshop will be held in German.*

The (in)compatibility of motherhood and science has been discussed for some time, but mostly as individual success stories. What has not often been publicly addressed so far is one's own perspective, one's own experiences, one's own worries and concerns with regard to motherhood and science. As a female scientist, do I want to have children? If so, at what cost? Will I be able to pursue a career in science even if I have children? What challenges do I face in academia as a mother or a female who wants to have children? We seek to address these and similar questions in this workshop.

Workshop Facilitators: Sarah Czerney and Lena Eckert

12.01.2023 // Professor wanted! Planning und Optimizing your Academic Career

*This workshop will be held in German.*

The postdoc years are essential for academic career development. During this period, scientists are often torn between conflicting priorities of intellectual independence, on the one hand, and meeting professional obligations towards their employers, on the other hand. Postdocs are expected to develop an independent publication record, apply for external funding, create a distinct research profile, build a teaching portfolio, communicate their research, build a network, undertake research stays abroad, etc. etc. Which of these tasks are particularly important? What are the top priorities? Which time frame is appropriate and compatible with my personal private priorities? How important is the habilitation? And what are possibilities and important steps for international research stays? The first part of the seminar will be dedicated to learning about and evaluating the various requirements for a long-term career in academia. Based on this, you will review your current academic profile, and specify your next goals and major steps towards qualifying for a long-term academic career.

Facilitator: Dr. Dieta Kuchenbrandt
